Types of hearing aids

One size does not fit all

Digital hearing aids are technologically advanced devices that can be easily adapted to each person’s individual hearing needs and prescription. At Digisound Hearing, we will work with you to find the right hearing solution for your hearing needs, your lifestyle, cosmetic concerns and budget.

What will my hearing aid look like?

There are several different hearing aid styles as not one size fits all. Here are the various styles available.

Receiver in canals (RIC)

Discreet yet powerful, receiver in canal (RIC) technology fits comfortably behind your ear. They have a transmission wire that connects the shell to the receiver, which is housed in a custom ear mould or dome-shaped earbud. This allows for better sound control and less distortion. RICs are getting increasingly popular as they fit all types of hearing loss and are less noticeable.

Invisible Hearing Aids / Nano (IIC)

The most discreet hearing aid today! Due to its tiny size and unique position of being deep in the ear, it is invisible when worn. The strategic placement of the hearing aid, which sits close to the eardrum, means that it can produce natural sound, thus lowering the chances of distortion. Custom made to fit your ear canal, it feels so comfortable in the ear you can almost forget you are wearing it.

Completely In the Canal (CIC)

CIC fit all the way in the ear canal. Slightly bigger than the invisible in the canal (IIC) style, our next smallest hearing aid is the CIC. Made with a custom impression of your ear and matched to suit your skin tone, the CIC fits neatly inside the ear canal. They are rarely visible and are therefore cosmetically appealing to the wearer.

In the Canal (ITC)

This inconspicuous customised hearing aid fits just at the entrance of the ear canal. Slightly larger than the CIC, the ITC has more room to provide greater power and a range of features.

In the Ear (ITE)

In the Ear (ITE) hearing aids are custom ear moulds with circuitry built in that fill most of the visible portion of the ear. This style of hearing aid can often be simpler to handle and allows you adjust your hearing aid features and batteries more easily, making it the ideal style for those with limited dexterity. 

Behind the Ear (BTE)

This is the most widely recognised hearing aid style which fits comfortably behind the ear and attaches to a custom-made ear mould. However, unlike the traditional analogue hearing aids, today’s BTEs are slimmer, more discreet and have the ability to match hair and skin tone. These hearing aids are suitable for a wide range of hearing loss including profound hearing loss.
